Want to try this again..

As you may know from an earlier thread of mine, I was battling an Ich problem with my 6 clown loaches about 3 weeks ago (3 1" and 3 3") Well, to make a VERY long story short, the ich won and I lost all 6. I've been treating my tank and it seems back to "normal". The rest of my fish have been "spot" free for over a week now, and I REALLY want to try this again..

I LOVE these Loaches and want to make them the centerpiece of my tank. Any suggestions on purchasing, shopping, transporting, and introducing these things into a tank?? I've found some at two LFS, BUT they are crowded into open tanks and look VERY stressed which is what I think brought on the problem with my first group...

Any help would be appreciated...
